Dorothea Lange & Vanessa Winship @ Barbican Gallery

June 22, 2018 - September 2, 2018

The first UK retrospective of American documentary photographer Dorothea Lange (1895-1965) and first major UK solo exhibition of British contemporary photographer Vanessa Kinship.

This exhibition celebrates Dorothea Lange’s photographic vision from her early studio portraiture and iconic ‘Migrant Mother’ to the post-Pearl Harbour internment of Japanese-Americans and changing face of the social and physical American landscape after WWII.

Vanessa Winship’s poetic gaze explores the fragile nature of our landscape and society, how memory leaves its mark on our collective and individual histories. Winship’s work captures the ‘transition between myth and the individual’, revealing deeply intimate photographs that often appear to avoid specific contexts or any immediate political significance. The exhibition brings together a selection of more than 150 photographs, many never been seen before in the UK.
